We got a pretty decent start to the day and drove through nice parts of Wisconsin on the way to Milwaukee. There we toured the Harley-Davidson museum, and Kendra decided she either wanted a hog or a biker boyfriend. Then we drove through Milwaukee and into Chicago to The John Hancock building where we went to the observation deck. Afterwards we jumped on the bikes for a ride along Lake Michigan to Weiners Circle for an early dinner, and then returned to the car. We said our goodbyes to Chicago and headed south out of town past Indianapolis before stopping for the night.
